    My boyfriend is at JMU. I know that every year they do a President's Pub Crawl which is meant to be awesome and apparently everyone goes, not just 1st years and not just JMU as its so good! As far as i can remember...he also went to a couple of club night type things at the union and there was a fresher's ball with javine making a guest appearance (this might be wrong...seems like ages ago now!). I don't think he went to all the organised events, a lot of it is where you want to go with your new hall and course mates.

    There'll probably be loads going on!

    The presidents pub crawl i think goes to at least 10 different pubs. Last year there was the "shagtag" in the Cooler (the nightclub/bar in the union) which will no doubt be on this year. Also if you're in halls, there'll be the accomodation party which is held in the club Mood, which is in concert square. I think freshers "week" actually lasts for more like 2 weeks all together. It ends with the freshers finale. Last year i think Javine was there and Shola Ama, and somebody else should of been there but didnt turn up- cant remember who though!!

    No doubt there'll be something going on up at the union every night. If not you can go into town and go to all the bars in concert square- theres a student night every day of the week! Monday is double vision, which is in Liverpool Uni's union. they have loads of live bands and groups on like girls aloud. To be honest i dont really like double vision though, plus the drinks are quite expensive. The place to be on a monday is Walkabout without doubt!!!! every monday they have games up on the main stage where you can win bottles of champagne. games you'd probly expect to play on 18-30's holidays- if you know what i mean. expect to see some naked bodies!!!!! tuesday is at society. wednesday is called medication which is at Nation- this is my big night of the week!!!! nothing beats the medication cheesy room! haha. Thursday night is at garlands- (and no its not just for gay people!). All these nights you dont really need to get dressed up, i just wear t-shirt, jeans and trainers (not good trainers because when you come out of medication they'll be filthy with people stepping on them accidently). you'll more or less need to show ur student card everywhere during the week, so dont forget to bring it with you whenever you go out (either your NUS card or your white library card). friday, saturday and sunday though you'll need to be dressed smart. ie, no trainers, and sometimes for lads you might not get in some places without a collar (only rarely though). the must place to go to is Baa Baa for cheap drinks and £1 shots any night of the week!

    The first week you're at JMU you'll get a schedule where you're with people off your course, and there like get to know you sessions. In that schedule you'll go to the freshers fair where you can sign up to all the different sports etc and buy posters and stuff. You wont have much to do in terms of lessons and stuff, so your best bet is to go and sit in the union and have a drink.

    Just a tip aswell if you want discount drinks when you go into scream bar (if your up at mount pleasant- next to the union) make sure that u buy a "yellow card" its only a pound but u get loads of money off drinks! (no doubt i'll b in there- i dont even bother with lessons because i just sit off in there either playin pool, itbox, x-box, teddy grabber machine, or fruit machines!!!!!- I really need to actually work next year! haha)

    P.S. JMU is by far better than Liverpool Uni in terms of the social side of uni life! (in my opinion of course!)
